THE COLLEGE of Tourism and Hospitality Management’s Intenzync dominated “Danscene XXXIII: Nostalgia,” the annual University-wide dance competition, last Nov. 14 at the Albertus Magnus Auditorium.

Intenzync’s John Manalang won first place for his performance in the solo category.

Eric Cruz conquered the second place for his choreography inspired by the hit series “How I Met Your Mother,” while UST Arki Dance Troupe’s Miguel Taboy clinched the third place.

In the duo category, the first and second prize winners were Interzync duos John Manalang and Carmina de Alva, and Chauvette Magtrayo and Shannen Eraya.

Grace Anne Echon and Isabel Arzadon of Galaw, the official dance troupe of Hiraya, bagged third place.

The UST Engineering Dance Troupe was crowned champion in the group category, with its dance performance inspired by the cartoon TV show “Ed, Edd and Eddy.”

“It feels so good that we finally did something for the engineering community, it also feels so overwhelming because we didn’t expect to win,” Miguel Zuloaga, president of the dance troupe, told the Varsitarian.

Arki Dance Troupe placed second while Paci Rhutmos Dance Troupe, the UST-Alfredo M. Velayo College of Accountancy’s dance troupe, took the third place.

Paci Rhutmos Dance Troupe was also given the People’s Choice Award for its dance that depicted the devastating aftermath of war.

The competition, Danscene XXXIII: Nostalgia, was organized by the UST Salinggawi Dance Troupe and the Institute of Physical Education and Athletics.
